“The Edmonton market in January saw an increase in year-over-year residential unit sales as well as month-to-month sales,” says REALTORS® Association of Edmonton Chair Tom Shearer. “There have also been more sales of single-family homes, condos and duplexes compared to January of last year, while we’ve seen an increase in month over month sales for single-family homes and condos and a decrease in duplex rowhouse sales. We are encouraged to see this kind of activity at the start of the year, which is typically a slower time in the real estate market, and especially in the current economic climate.”
